Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has been fined £8,000 by the Football Association after he was sent to the stand during his side's Premier League victory over Swansea last month.
The FA charged Conte with misconduct last week after he was sent to the stands by referee Neil Swarbrick for protesting about the awarding of a Swansea goal kick at Stamford Bridge.
There were initial fears from Chelsea that the Italian would be handed a touchline ban, but he has been handed a fine for his misconduct in the 43rd minute of Chelsea’s win. Conte, who watched the second-half of the clash from the dressing room, apologised for his behaviour. ‘I was frustrated for this situation,’ he explained.
‘I tried to tell again, but then the referee took this decision. ‘I repeat, I apologise for this. For sure I made a mistake.’
